Glasgow Tower

by Jemma (follow)
Unrivalled views of Glasgow, the River Clyde and surrounding landscapes.

Did you know that we have a Guinness-World-Record in our own backyard? Glasgow Tower holds it for being the tallest fully rotating freestanding structure in the world.

View from Glasgow Tower

At 127 metres high, the equivalent of over 30 double-decker buses, the Glasgow Tower is an iconic landmark, capable of rotating 360 degrees into the prevailing wind.

I'm not sure that I'd like to experience that, but here's what you CAN do:

Take the 2.5 minute journey to the Tower cabin where you can enjoy spectacular views of Glasgow and the River Clyde.

Learn about the history of Glasgow and the site on which the Tower is built.

Walk through a timeline tunnel that highlights key events in the city over the past 100 years.

View a five-metre long map of the Clyde which boasts historic images and footage of how the local area has changed over the years.



Where: 50 Pacific Quay, Glasgow, G51 1EA

When: Monday - Sunday 10am- 5pm

Price: £6.50 stand alone or only £3.50 when purchased as an add-on to a Glasgow Science Centre ticket.
